Adam Woodyatt told a heartwarming story of his friend Barbara Windsor, who ‘danced on stage’ at the theatre on a brilliant night out.
Barbara, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in April 2014, has been seen with friends and family since her diagnosis, with many sharing the love and awe at how well she has continued on despite her illness.
And Adam continued in the tributes, speaking out about how well she has been doing in an interview with Phillip Schofield and Rochelle Humes on This Morning.
He told the pair: "She’s ok. It isn’t my place to talk about it, but we had such laughs [on a recent night at the theatre.]
"She sung along the whole time and went up on stage a bit. She was tap dancing – we were worried she was going to fall in the pit…
"Have you been to Drury Lane? She’s going forward doing the flap – we got a little bit worried."
He also spoke about some of his famous co-stars and their methods, though he admitted he hates what is known as the "duff duff," the moment before the credits roll where actors hold a dramatic pose after a major bombshell.
Adam continued: "I hate them – you have to stand there for four minutes like a lemon.
"In real life, if someone’s just given you some vital information you’d say something, actually just trying to stand there for four seconds and do it is hard."
As Phil tried to show off his version, Adam noticed something familiar in his style.
He said: "You’ve done the Wendy Richards technique – you were thinking about your shopping. That’s what she did she would do. She’d literally sit there going, ‘Chilli, chocolate…’"
Adam then revealed Letitia Dean’s method, which he called "touch your pearls," as she would hold her hand over her chest in shock.
Barbara and Adam performed together in the BBC soap for many years, but they took a night to see Bonnie Langford appear in 42nd Street.
